    Re: Ravens sign CB Chris Johnson



    He was always a decent CB for Oakland. Think about what Cary Williams was for the Ravens last year, but on a slightly lower level. His ball skills are 'okay'. He's not really going to get beat badly. He'll be in the play and he tackles well. At his age, given the circumstances, he could find a nice home here in Baltimore.

    I had one in my sophmore year and it twisted, not fun

    rrr - you're confusing sport hernia with inguinal hernia. Sports hernia is a different entity. In fact it is a misnomer, with no true anatomic herniation. It is a spectrum of tendon / muscle abnormalities including the adductors muscles of the thighs and the rectus abdominus muscle at their attachments onto the pubic bones.

    Fabe was no were near as bad as Walker PI bro.
    After his injury, yes he was done. He played ok prior to that, but like Cary Williams had hands of stone, but even when he was square he couldn't catch I'll give Cary that atleast, even though he gets toasted on a reg.

    Yeah Fabian played at a pro bowl level under Rex in 2008. If he could catch he would have easily led the league in interceptions. He had to have dropped atleast 10.

    Re: Ravens sign CB Chris Johnson

    Just FYI, Smith has just had groin surgery & will be out 4-6 weeks. Chicken&egg situation, maybe--did they sign Johnson because they knew Jimmy needed surgery, or did signing Johnson shore up the DB depth enough that they were willing to take a chance on life without a gimpy Jimmy Smith for the rest of the season?

    For that matter, used properly, Walker wasn't as bad as his "Walker PI" reputation--his forte was jamming slot receivers but he got pressed into service on the outside where the opponents' best WRs would beat him like a rented mule.

    Wow brother, you should read a few more post before hacking away at keys. Most of this thread is about Jimmy having Surgery and being out.

    Um, sorry, but you're wrong. I looked through the entire thread & only posted this when I saw there had been no mention of the surgery herein. You must be confusing this thread with Luke Daniel's "Jimmy Smith Has Had Groin Surgery" thread.

    Ok you got me, I was reading in both windows, nobody actually said he had Surgery, but there are several mentioning of Jimmy being injured and missing time and I'm sure most the chatter was started after the Jimmy had surgery thread. It's good though, everyone is tracking Jimmy being hurt and being out.
    Bottom Line this is not a bad pickup. In fact I like it going forward with the teams we play and the timing routes being key for the Offenses of the Manning's and even the Steelers. He is a big body and hopefully if he sees the field after getting familiar with the system he will be jamming at the line and disrupting that timing

    True Walker was a physical DB, most of time to physical.

    Sounds like his problems in oakland started as physical and morphed to family-related. Hopefully the physical problems are behind him and he's found some peace with his loss:

    Agreed..... seems like he can contribute! Ravens sometimes have a way of polishing a gem... let's hope this is another one!

    .

    That would be deliciously different! Actually saw a little pressing from Chykie and Corey Graham vs. Oakland. IMO the latter has proven a valuable signing as things have played out thus far
